FAQ's
1. What is a Deed Poll?

A Deed Poll is a legal document that concerns one person and it is only signed
by that person. A Deed Poll binds the signatory from the date of signing it.
Today, Deed Polls have only one generally accepted meaning, that is, a change
of name. They are more correctly known as a Deed of Change of Name.
A Deed Poll for a change of name contains three declarations and by signing the
Deed Poll you are committing yourself to:

1. Stop the use of your former name;
2. Start using your new name only;
3. Requesting everyone to address you by your new name.

With a Deed Poll, you can change your surname, add names, remove names or rearrange your existing names. You can change your name at any time.

Please note that a Deed Poll cannot be used to get your birth certificate changed to your new name.

2. Who can apply for a Deed Poll?

You can apply for a Deed Poll if you are a Singapore citizen or Singapore permanent resident.

To change your own name by Deed Poll, you must be at least 21 years of age. If you are under 21 years of age, one of your parents can apply for a Deed Poll on your behalf.

3. Are there any restrictions on names?

Yes.

Please note, we will not accept an order for a Deed Poll that includes a name that we consider vulgar, offensive or unsuitable, may result in others believing you have a conferred or inherited honour or title, for example, a change of first name to Datuk, Datin, Tan Sri, Tun, Sir, Lord, Lady, Baron, Baroness, Count, Earl, Countess, Duke or Duchess.

Other than the above restrictions, you can change your forenames, surname (or both), add names, remove names or rearrange your existing names. You can change your name at any time and for any reason.
